[Description(s) from The National Gazetteer of Great Britain and Ireland (1868)]

"BRIDGERULE, a parish partly in the hundred of Stratton, in the county of Cornwall, and partly in the hundred of Black Torrington, in the county of Devon, 5 miles to the S.E. of Stratton. It is situated on the banks of the river Tamar and on the Bude canal, and derives its name from the bridge which crosses the river here, and from Ruald or Reginald Adobed, who held the manor about the time of the Norman Conquest. The living is a vicarage in the diocese of Exeter, of the value of £150, in the patronage of the Rev. S. N. Kingdon, the present vicar. The church is in Devonshire. Tackbear is a very ancient seat, which was given to a relative of William the Conqueror."
